While faring better than their peers in high-poverty schools, students of color and low-income students in wealthier schools still lag behind their higher-income and white classmates. This is largely due to unequal access to educational, personal and sociopolitical resources outside of school, according to an extensive report by Public Impact, commissioned by the Oak Foundation. The authors recommend that leaders of low-poverty schools do more to provide “outstanding learning for all, secure and healthy learners, and a culture of equity within low- and moderate-poverty schools.” The report examined approaches with evidence of boosting outcomes for disadvantaged students without reducing the availability of advanced instruction.
